Walking up to my gate, there he was! Holding a bag of my favorite candy. He was 1st off the plane because he said “my work was done”.
Actually some “work” remained. I was to be escorted on first, after he first took my bag onboard and stowed it.
We stopped off at Mark’s office, I mean the cockpit, before I found my real seat.
I really received the royal treatment. EARLY boarding escorted by the Captain.
Just before takeoff, I heard Mark welcoming everyone onboard. Along with a shout-out to his mom. Lots of passengers clapped and I called out “that’s my boy”!
As I said, I have longed for the time I’d fly on Southwest with Mark as my pilot. That day came today. Such Joy. And such pride.

Just beautiful. So special for you both.
What a wonderful thrill for and so cool how open Mark was about having his mom along during his flight. Even got a comment from your seat mate. I would love to get on a flight someday and have Mark as my pilot.
What joy. So thrilled for you and Mark. I just can’t imagine the pride you felt.
